Matt is a cool dude. He plans well for studio sessions and has an excellent workflow for tracking. Everything goes smoothly. He has a good ear for choosing the right equipment and space to get a sound that suits your band’s style. He is very adaptable. It works well with my band, FLVRHAUS, because we have songs that cross genres and he’s worked with musicians across genres. Matt Roach provides excellent value, dedication, and positivity to our projects and I would recommend him to anyone who’s serious about sounding awesome.

“One thing I think that sets Matt apart is that he really builds a unique character to fit your vision of your sound. Regardless of whether you want to sound shiny and grand, or gritty and dark, Matt will get you there. I’ve always had good experiences working with him and look forward to creating more cool stuff together in the future.”

“What was different about working with Matt compared to other engineers I’ve worked with is his passion in your project. When Matt was recording our album, he treated it as his album too – your success is Matts success, and he did more than just record an album. He gave us advice, helped us build a network of contacts, and treated us like friends rather than clients. Studio days can be long, but Matt knows how to keep it fun. I’m excited to see what Matt can help turn my future projects into.”
– Parker Lane, The Mountain Man / Resurgence
“I’ve worked with Matt a handful of times throughout my musical career, and what started as a purely professional environment was quickly turned into a friendly one. Matt knows what he’s doing, he has a sound, and really invests himself into not only the project, but the artist. Much of what I learned in my early days was catalyzed by Matt’s honest advice.”
– Robin Harris, Wormwitch / Take Heart
